An interest inventory is a popular assessment tool used to facilitate career planning and career direction. We use SHL’s Career Pathfinder which is one of the leading career interest tests on the market.
Career Pathfinder will identify where your interest lies against 6 interest areas – People, Enterprise, Data, Resources, Artistic & Ideas.
An example – If you have a preference for people.
People – Individuals who prefer this area like to work with people and enjoy working in groups. They are likely to enjoy duties that involve caring or helping people with their problems. A preference “people” may suggest someone who likes coaching, teaching, or developing others. Jobs may be found in Medical, Health, Education, Training, Advising, Travel, Hospitality or Sports
